In pursuance of SEBI guidelines for adjustment of Futures & Options Contracts on announcement of corporate actions, the members of the Equity Derivatives Segment are hereby informed the following:

RELIANCE INDUSTRIES LTD(Scrip Code: 500325) has informed the Exchange that Board of Directors of the company  has decided, in meeting held, to issue equity shares on rights basis in the ratio of 1:15, i.e 1 Equity Shares for every 15 Equity Shares held at an issue price of Rs. 1257 per equity share. Further, the company has fixed Record Date as May 14,2020 for the purpose of determining the shareholders who will be eligible to apply for the Issue. 

In view of the above and in compliance with the aforementioned SEBI guidelines, the Exchange shall make the necessary adjustments for all the available Futures & Options contracts on the underlying scrip RELIANCE INDUSTRIES LTD(Derivatives Asset Code – RELI), on May 12,2020 end of day, the ‘ex-date’ being May 13,2020.


The adjustments to be made on account of the above corporate action in line with SEBI guidelines are given below:


A) Adjustment Factor:


If the ratio of Rights Issue is say A: B and the Issue price of Rights Issue is S, the adjustment factor is defined as (P-E)/P where P= Spot price on last cum date and 

(Benefits per share) E = (P-S) x A / (A+B).


Underlying close price on the last cum date (P): 1576.75#

Issue price of the rights (S): 1257


Adjustment Factor:


Number of Existing Shares = 15           

Rights Entitlement = 1

Total Entitlement =   16


Benefit per Right Entitlement

= (P – S) x Rights Entitlement

= (1576.75-1257) x 1 = Rs.319.75


Benefits per share (E)

= (319.75/16) = Rs.19.984375


Hence, Adjustment Factor is

= (P-E)/P

= (1576.75-19.984375) / 1576.75

= 0.987326

Therefore, the adjustment factor in this case would be 0.987326


# the figure is only an indicative value for the purpose of example.


B) Adjustments for Options Contracts:


1. Strike Price: The adjusted strike price will be arrived at by multiplying the Existing Strike price by the adjustment factor 0.987326 The revised strike prices on account of adjustment would be as shown below (example):


Existing Strike Prices

Revised Strike Prices







2. Change in Market LotThe adjusted market lot will be arrived at by dividing the existing market lot by the adjustment factor 0.987326.  The revised market lot would therefore be as under:


    500(existing market lot) / 0.987326 (adjustment factor) =  506(revised market lot)




C) Adjustments for Futures Contracts:



1. Futures price: The adjusted futures price will be arrived at by multiplying the old futures price by the adjustment factor (0.987326). 


2. Market Lot: The adjusted market lot will be arrived at by dividing the existing market lot by the adjustment factor (0.987326).The revised market lot would be as under:


     500 (existing market lot) / 0.987326 (adjustment factor) = 506(revised market lot)



The details of the revised adjustment factor and lot size will be informed to members separately on May 12,2020.
